We had picked this restaurant on the basis of the reviews and the website. The website says food is available from 11.00 am to 8.30 pm and it is open every day. We went along on a Tuesday evening in December at about 6.45 pm and the place was in darkness. Luckily the restaurant across the road was open and... More

Following a sleety, wet walk to Easedale Tarn, we were in desperate need of sustenance and warmth. Potted Out provided this in abundance - cheesy paninis, thrice baked chips followed by cake (coffee and walnut was superb) and hot tea. Friendly staff as well. Thank you.

Went to Grasmere for a nice Sunday afternoon out with the intention of going for a walk and having a nice lunch somewhere. After a long haul around Grasmere trying to find somewhere to have food (we tried everywhere but apparently nowhere in Grasmere has the business sense to properly serve food on a Sunday), we found this place. The... More

we called in for a second breakfast, intended to get scones and tea, and that s what we got: two enormous scones with clotted cream and jam, earl grey and coffee, what a lovely nice meal we had! The place is cosy and warm, perfect for a late breakfast in a wintery morning.

We called here for a hot drink to warm us up on a lovely autumn day. We sat outside with the dog and enjoyed hot chocolates and purchased a delicious looking piece of Coffee and walnut cake to enjoy later. Very friendly staff café clean and welcoming.

We called with friends for a coffee and scone whilst on holiday in Grasmere. The manager and staff made us very welcome. The cafe was full which speaks volumes and the food looked really tempting and well presented . We visit Grasmere usually 2 to 3 times a year and we think this is one of the best cafe's in... More

We've been here before as it's often a bit quieter at coffee time as it's not right in the centre of grasmere. Very cheerful, friendly manager. Great cinnamon latte, and straight black for hubby. We shared an enormous fruit scone with generous amount of jam, butter and clotted cream. A shame these were served in paper containers as not sure... More
